Firecracker Halibut

"Seafood done right can be a little slice of heaven. This particular dish is one of my personal favorites. Good as a main dish and also good over salad of your choice."

Ready In:




  • Preheat broiler/oven or grill to medium-high heat.
  • Mix together all dry seasoning ingredients until well combined.
  • Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska Halibut under cold water, pat dry with paper towel. Place halibut on a spray-coated or foil-lined baking sheet. Brush butter onto top surfaces of halibut and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon seasoning mixture (note: for best results with frozen fish, cook halibut 4 minutes before adding butter and spices.).
  • Grill or broil halibut 5-7 inches from heat for 13 minutes for frozen halibut OR 8 minutes for fresh/thawed fish . Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.
  • Store remaining seasoning mixture in an airtight container for future use.

    I see that it says I can broil it five to seven inches from the heat source, but at what temperature, my oven does high and low broil. So do I broil it on high or broil it on low?

    This was very good. I used frozen halibut (thawed) and followed the recipe as written. Since I was only cooking 2 fish filets, I also used the spice mix on some cleaned jumbo shrimp. Very tasty.

    The spice mix is lovely - It doesn't overpower the fish just enhances the flavor. I have some Snapper in the freezer and I will try it on them as well. I had fresh halibut - just the start of the season so it was super good. I lightly covered the fish with foil for the first 8 minutes so the spices wouldn't get too brown Perfect fish!

I am an eccentric person with eclectic tastes. I am always open to new things and appreciate different views. I believe that originals are a good starting point to build upon. I do hair by day and tear up a kitchen by night. I love to cook and nothing beats the satisfaction gained by a meal done well.
